It's entirely unclear to me what do you mean when you say : "ASL is the
latest example of this. It makes sense to allow for one Wikipedia with
SignWriting because it is the only way that we will get the technical
aspects of MediaWiki right."

The language policy allows us to be flexible with how we interpret the
rules. My experience is that we are not using this flexibility. I made
several proposals over te last few years and they have all been torpedoed.
ASL is the latest example of this. It makes sense to allow for one
Wikipedia with SignWriting because it is the only way that we will get the
technical aspects of MediaWiki right. It means that issues will be exposed
in Commons and Wikidata as well.
This is denied for no reason that is clear to me.
I feel that when we cannot make use of the room the policy allows us, there
is no purpose for me to be a member.. It is up to the rest of the committee
to consider this. I hope that we will have an ASL Wikipedia in the near
future but if that is not to be, it and the implementation of the language
policy is no longer my active concern.
